Eurovision 2018

The results of the second semifinal of the Eurovision song contest 2018 final of the competition took place in 10 countries, namely: Serbia, Moldova, Hungary, Ukraine, Sweden, Australia, Norway, Denmark, Slovenia, the Netherlands. However, not, it seems, in China, after the European Broadcasting Union banned Chinese broadcaster Mango TV from blocking LGBT elements of the event.

IRELAND has jumped to third-favourite to win the Eurovision Song Contest tonight in the wake of controversy over its song being censored by a Chinese broadcaster.

On Tuesday, May 8, China's Mango TV blurred a rainbow flag that appeared during Switzerland's performance and also made a decision to cut performances from Ireland and Albania.

We will remind, Yulia Samoilova was supposed to represent Russian Federation at Eurovision-2017 in Kiev, but she was denied entry to Ukraine due to the fact that she performed in the occupied Crimea.

According to reports, the broadcaster also censored rainbow flags which could be seen in the audience.

The EBU announced on Friday the termination of its contract with China's MangoTV, preventing it from broadcasting Thursday's second semi-final and Saturday's grand final hosted in Lisbon, Portugal.

O'Shaughnessy said he was glad the EBU stood up for diversity.

Threat of severe thunderstorms for evening commute
A weather service hourly graph shows no rain for Kansas City, Kansas, on Friday night, with rain possible starting at 7 p.m. The weather service said the best chance for severe storms to develop will be late Friday afternoon into Friday evening.

Such censorship is perhaps unsurprising from a country which has a history of media censorship.

Teen Vogue has reached out to Mango TV for comment.

Ireland's Eurovision entrant Ryan O'Shaughnessy said the decision to ban the Chinese broadcaster was a positive one. "I would like to welcome the decision by the EBU to do that because from the very start we have just said love is love".

SBS will air the grand final of the 63rd annual Eurovision Song Contest live on Sunday at 5am and repeated in prime time at 7.30pm.
